Quadrotech Nova Current - User Guide

Delegation & Policy Control Reporting Tenant Management System Settings About

Delegation & Policy Control

Quadrotech Nova provides granular delegation and policy control for Office 365, enabling you to assign pre-defined roles and responsibilities to specific users, such as help desk operators, country-level administrators, or even end-users – setting boundaries far more precise than native delegation. Nova also includes policy-based automation for authorization, service configuration and license assignment.

Service Accounts for DPC

Nova Delegation and Policy Control (DPC) uses service accounts to manage tenants and to perform actions on behalf of delegated administrators. Service accounts are also used to pull the data from the account to perform actions upon in DPC.

You can review and manage these accounts on the Manage Administration, then the Service Accounts page.

On the Service accounts tab, you can:

·Refresh: Update the list of service accounts for the tenant.

·Add: Add a service account to the tenant. Instructions on how to do that are below.

·Edit: Change the service account. You will need the account's credentials to access.

·Delete: Remove the service account from the tenant.

·Authorize Management: Learn more about this below.

 

There are two steps to configure and setup Nova DPC for the tenant. They are:

 

1.Allowing permissions for Nova DPC

Nova DPC requires an administrator to allow Microsoft permissions to retrieve data for the tenant. To do this:

1.On the Manage administration tab, click Service accounts.

2.Click Authorize Management.

3.Sign in using an administrative account.

4.Review the list of permissions. Once you are happy with this, click Accept. This will then take you back to Nova.

 

2.Adding a service account to the tenant

You then need to add the service account to pull the data from to perform actions on. To do this:

1.On the Manage administration tab, click Service accounts.

2.Select the tenant to add the service account to.

3.Enter the global administrative account's email to the Admin username box.

4.Enter the password of the global administrator.

5.Click Save. The service account will then be provisioned.

Pre-requisites for service accounts

·The service account needs to be a global administrator in the tenant. The global administrator account will also need to be mail enabled to receive an email invitation. A global administrator account is required as:

i.this allows for delegated actions to be completed by Nova users, without needing to grant these users full administrator permissions.

ii.an account with global administrator permissions are able to perform actions that may not be available via Microsoft Graph.

·Single Sign On (SSO) is the preferred method of signing in. This will need to be authorized in each tenant.

·Multi-factor authentication should not be enabled on the account (it is used to programmatically run PowerShell sessions, and therefore cannot be multi-factor authentication enabled). Application passwords are not supported for the service account.

·It must be free from any policies that would restrict its access in the tenant (for example, a Conditional Access Policy that limits basic authentication attempts from internal IP addresses only).

·It should be dedicated for use with Nova DPC.

info

NOTE: If the password of the service account is changed, it must also be changed in Nova DPC.

Virtual Organizational Units

A virtual organizational unit (vOU) is a manually built dynamic list of users tailored to group users by a specific attribute. For example, vOUs can be built to group users by their location, department, company or another attribute. These help administrators to group users to assign authorization, configuration and license policies to them.

If you are familiar with on-premises Active Directory, then you will already be familiar with organizational units. The problem is that Azure Active Directory and Office 365 do not have this concept. These users are stored in a flat list, which can make working with multiple geographies and multiple departments much more difficult. Nova has modified this premise, redefined as 'virtual organizational units'. You can create a hierarchy of these just like you would in an on premises Active Directory environment.

Viewing users and groups assigned to a Virtual Organizational Unit

Follow the steps below to see a list of users and groups currently assigned to a virtual organizational unit.

1.In the left menu, select Manage Administration > Tenants.

2.Expand the organizational units until you find the one whose users you want to see.

3.Click the desired organizational unit is ellipses button (...) and select Users or Groups to see a list of users or groups that were added to the group within Nova.
